Tina Fey wickedly slams Sarah Palin in two SNL skits

For the past two weeks, former Saturday Night Live cast member Tina Fey has agreed to return to SNL for a series of skits parodying Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. And Tina Fey was just brilliant, completely spot-on with Palin's tone, mannerisms, and her behavior. Tina Fey looks like a dead-ringer for Sarah Palin. Here is Fey's first Palin skit, with Amy Poehler playing Hillary Clinton, from SNL's September 20th show:

And here is Fey's second Sarah Palin skit, parodying Palin's interview with CBS's Katie Couric, again played by Amy Poehler, on September 27th:

Of course, the SNL writers were especially brilliant in incorporating Sarah Palin's own answer during the Couric interview into the Tina Fey parody. From Keith Olbermann:

It is really bad when a candidate's own words are being used as the punchline for a comedic sketch. Tomorrow, Palin will be attending the vice presidential debate with Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden. I wonder what the SNL writers will be creating from Palin's debate with Biden?
